About The Chupacabra 10K/5K Headlamp Run
Start and Finish at Blossom Golf, 13800 Jones Maltsberger, San Antonio 78247. Go to www.runintexas.com for maps and more info. We will start this event in waves based on your road 10K ability. Both the 5K and 10K courses run through heavily wooded dirt trails in the pitch dark. The 10K and 5K courses are separate but both start and finish in the same spot. A flashlight or headlamp is required and extremely necessary. The trails can be very rocky with tree roots in places, as well as low branches so paying attention is critical. There are many opportunities to fall and get injured. This is not a trail run for beginners. It is up to you to provide your own lighting so you do not take a spill or run into a branch. Trails will be marked with signage and glow sticks in the trees. Glow sticks guide you along the trail but do not by any stretch illuminate the ground, so make sure you have a good headlamp and/or flashlight. All runners will recieve a post race party lasting until midnight, a tech shirt, post race beer (for those of age), and bbq. This is a fun run so no awards will be given but overall results will be posted.
10K and 5K Courses
BOTH THE 5K AND 10K START AND FINISH AT BLOSSOM GOLF CENTER. The 10K and 5K will start at 9pm sharp in 3 waves approx 2 min apart ea. The 5K will take a hard right approx .75 mi after the start and run a separate course from the 10K. The 5K will have 1 water stop. The 10K will have 2 water stops on the course. Each wave will be based upon those people's 10K road raceing ability. If you dont know your 10K time take your 5K time, multiply by 2 and add a couple of minutes. If you do not know your times or if this is your first running event, please get in the last wave and have fun.

Waiver and Release
I understand that trail running at night is hazardous. I know I could break an ankle or take a stick in my eye. I am also aware that if I am not in shape I could have a heart attack or stroke. I realize if I do not pay attention to the superior trail markings I could get lost. In no way do I hold anyone other than myself responsible for my well being during this race.
